Drivers we spoke with say they wanted to get out Tuesday but knew to take it slow.
"The one thing you don't want to do in roads like this is go too fast, the biggest danger quite frankly is the other driver. So, I think the government over all closing government, closing schools, you are saving lives,” said San Antonio resident Mark Pantak.
"As long as you are careful, it’s no worse than any other day that we have rain, I am from up north so this to me was nothing, so you go in, keep steady and keep going,” said San Antonio resident Dee Carter.
